Congratulations to Lia Mort of Richfield, PA on her recent purchase of Matoskah's Johnny B. Goode! Lia was looking for a companion alpaca for her 8-month old male cria Buck who was about to be weaned and Johnny was a perfect fit for her needs. After arriving Johnny seemed to really enjoy his new surroundings, new friends and new home and we know he will spend many happy years ahead on Lia's farm!
Here is a line up of our fall events as they now stand:
In celebration of Small Business Saturday we will have our farm store open from 11:00 to 4:00 on Saturday, November 28. There is no need to call ahead! Just come on out to find that special Holiday gift for your alpaca loving family and friends.
Christmas Holiday Market is being held in conjunction with the Waynesboro Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting on Saturday, Nov 21. Come join us in Mainstreet Park from 4:00 PM to 7:30 PM. The parade begins at 3:00 PM with the tree lighting occurring immediately afterward.
Holiday Open Farm - Saturday, December 12 from 10:30-4:00. Come see the alpacas in the weather they love - COLD - and warm yourself by our fire pit with some hot chocolate or coffee. After consuming some Holiday treats, visit the farm store to finish up your last minute shopping and then treat yourself to some warm alpaca mittens, gloves, socks, hat, or whatever else catches your fancy!
Our yearling male Born to Run placed third out of 11 in the white color class at the 2020 Pennsylvania Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association Fleece Show held on August 7 & 8 at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center. His score of 84 earned him an Advanced Fleece Award and was high enough to have taken the blue ribbon in other classes, but white is always a very competitive class in which to compete. He scored well in all the categories that help make his fiber a joy to spin into lovely, soft yarn. With a score of 19.5 out of a possible 20 in fineness and handle, 8.5/10 in uniformity of micron (commonly known as consistency) 5/5 in uniformity of length, and 5/5 in uniformity of color he confirmed that we are on the right track with our breeding program toward our goal of producing alpacas who will produce outstanding yarn!
